Yeah, even if we got past the "do we want a bug tracker?" question, any project would probably end up stalling indefinitely on "well then, which one?" In the end, we should probably just throw something up based on whatever the folks who are going to be actually maintaining it want and call it a 'beta' and see what happens with it. The above-referenced individuals would be the bug tracking system curators, of course. Unless it's got serious technical issues, the infrastructure team will do our best to support the choice. On the other hand, some of us would likely be involved in bug curation also. Thanks! Stephen
